What is the little bump that sometimes appears above a body piercing?

Piercing Bumps

It's unlikely that the bump is a keloid (raised formation of scar tissue). It's more likely that the little bump you see above your body piercing is filled with fluids that are associated with healing. With a little patience and consistent cleaning, that little bump should disappear after a few days. Consult a doctor if the bump lasts more than a week.

I have heard that a bump can last for longer than a week and if you keep it clean, and dont touch it it should eventually go away. And these bumbs are common in piercings and people should not worry and just have a little patience.
